exceptional utility as an insecticide. As an example of
this valuable utility, a group of nymphs of the lone star
tick, Amblyomma americanum were dipped into an ace
tone solution containing 1 percent of the novel compound
of the present invention based on the volume of acetone
used; the specimens were held in the solution for about
three seconds, then withdrawn, placed on absorbent paper

A group of young cranberry bean plants were used as
hosts for Z-spotted spider mites, a known number of mites
being placed on each plant prior to application of the
test chemical. The infested plants were then dipped into
an aqueous dispersion of the compound of the present
invention, said dispersion containing 0.05 percent by
